Become a Patron

For hundreds of years, the tradition of patronage has been an integral part of the arts in the UK.

Patrons are the believers, the enlightened individuals who passionately fight for the arts, and who personally support and enable the creation of new masterpieces. In the challenging economic climate of the 21st century, these patrons are more important than ever.

If you are ready to take the next step, we encourage you to join our Patron programme and be welcomed into the Manchester Collective family.

As a Patron, you will personally be supporting one of our fantastic musicians. You will form a close relationship with your player, and your contribution will go directly towards their salary. As a Patron, you will make a substantial and profound difference to both your musician’s career, and to the future of Manchester Collective.

Your contribution will be acknowledged on the Manchester Collective website and in print, on our Patron page, and underneath the photo of your musician wherever it is reproduced.

As a Patron, you will also:

  • Gain access to exclusive Manchester Collective open rehearsals
  • Be invited to our post concert VIP events
  • Have first opportunity to book tickets to future concerts


£1,000 - £2,500 (depending on the chair) over the period of one year.
